Apply for a Fellowship with U.S. PIRG!
PIRG stands for the Public Interest Research Group. We stand up for the public against powerful interests when they push the other way, winning concrete results on real problems that affect millions of lives.
We take a non-partisan, fact-driven, result-oriented approach to all of the campaigns we work on. And these strategies have been effective for more than 40 years. We're hiring people to join our team, and help us win concrete results on these real problems!
Who We're Looking For
Do you think the overuse of antibiotics on factory farms makes no sense? Is overturning Citizens United one of the most important things we can do to put regular Americans back in the driver's seat of our democracy? Do we need to go above and beyond to protect consumers from unsafe or unscrupulous practices?
If you agree — and if you're willing to work harder than you'll work at most jobs to win smart solutions on real problems that affect millions of lives — consider a job as a fellow with U.S. PIRG. We look for smarts, leadership experience, top-notch written and verbal skills, and an eagerness to learn. We value organizing experience, including building campus groups.
What You'll Do
This is a two-year program, expressly designed to prepare future leaders with U.S. PIRG. You won't just sit behind a desk. You'll be out in the real world — recruiting new groups to join a coalition, speaking in a church basement or town hall to win a new endorsement, organizing a news event or rally, meeting with an editorial board, or doing whatever else it takes to urge our public officials to do the right thing.
The target annual compensation for this position is $26,000. U.S. PIRG offers a competitive benefits package. We also offer an excellent training program and opportunities for advancement.
